Super Nachos

Joyce and Kay


                   I’ve made nachos for dinner a few times over the past few months but it just didn’t taste like when Kay used to make it.   So, I finally asked her why it just didn’t taste the same.  She told me it was because she used her Super Nachos recipe rather than the simple nachos recipe.  Now, I’ll get it right.

   Remember this is just a kind of guide.  Add or remove almost anything you like……..


1  lb.                hamburger
1  med
.           onion, chopped

1  16 oz. can   refried beans
1  3-4 oz can  sliced olives, drained
¾ c                 taco sauce, mild or medium or hot to your taste

2-3 cups         jack and cheddar cheese, shredded (mild to sharp cheddar as you like)
3-4                  green onions, diced
1 ½ 0 2 c       guacamole
1 ½ - 2 c        sour cream
2-4 oz             green chilies, diced
s & p  to taste
Lots   of          tortilla chips


            Add onions to a hot skillet and add beef as the onions begin to cook down.  Season with salt and pepper.  Set aside.

            Spread refried beans in a pie pan or pans depending on the size of the pan and how thick you want the dish.   Cover beans with hamburger mixture.  Top hamburger with chilies, cheese and taco sauce.

            At this point you can bake at 400º for 20 minutes or refrigerate up to two days (or so).

            After baking, garnish with green onions, olives, guacamole and sour cream.

            Grab the chips and dig in.

            Sometimes I’ll use/include:

 whole olives and just cut them in half
 a good pico de gallo mixture

lime juice and/or
Floyd’s Famous Hot Lime sauce which is a key lime and habañero pepper sauce.
        (Hot is good but for me extra hot is the one.)
sliced jalapeño peppers if I want it very tasty.
